As UNIAN reported earlier, last night passed relatively calmly in the Donbas conflict zone. Ukrainian forces were attacked three times by Russian-backed insurgents in the east of Ukraine in the period from 1800 to 0700.

In the incidents, gunmen opened fire with small arms on the settlements of Kodema and Avdiivka, while from 0300 to 0305 there was a brief attack on new terminal at Donetsk airport, the government’s Anti-Terrorist Operation headquarters press center said.

As before, Ukrainian forces are observing a ceasefire declared on December 9, and are not returning fire even when attacked, the press center said.
